    Obviously, the work load is astonishing, and the independence is amazing. And I have 22 hours worth of private study over 10 days, which is something I now don't think I could live without- I'm basically dead on days where I have 5 lessons, but over the past 5 years, I've had 5 lessons a day anyway. Also, we have a lot more chilled relationship with our teachers, as well as our lessons being quite seminar based.

    I self taught IGCSE Maths, Chemistry and most of IGCSE ICT so I have done quite a bit of independent study this year! Same though for me there are 4 'independent study lessons' on my Year 12 timetable.

    That's good, do they give tutorials?

    I think they focus more on tutorials in late year 13, but our school has a very strong support system because the school know that most of us are there because we want 3A*s to get into a top uni.

    That's great! My sixthform has a reputation for producing quite a few Cambridge undergraduates. For me personally, I am not sure what I would like to do at university. I have targeted myself AABB

    Likewise with regards to Oxbridge. I want to ideally study law at Cambridge for which I need A*AA and to my surprise, those are my predicted grades!! Obviously though, my predicted grades changed every term, however I do not believe they will ever go down.

    I marked myself 51/75, Which was a lowish C
    I got the probability questions correct. It was 57/75 for a B and 66/75 for an A

    4 hours for Maths and Psych, then 5 for Bio and Chem because of practicals. Then 4 more hours for some guided learning thing (basically homework time).

    Ahh okay we're fairly similar. I have 4 hours for Biology, 8 hours for health and social care, and then 1 hour of study sessions for Bio, 2 for health so I'm in school 15/25 sessions a week!
